AS/400 9404 and TWINAX questions...

Also, the os's for old AS/400's would run for 30 or 60 days, then bomb, and
you could reload them indefinitely. sort of the same as XP, but less painful.

if you wanted to do real work, then you would have to pay, but to just make
the screen flash, you can run it for a while then reload.

one place I worked used a junk as/400 for that purpose, just to check
out connectivity with a hardware adapter for keyboard and screen

Don, do you have any referenced on this? I know some years ago Pick Systems
was porting to the AS/400, but that was bootlegged, and eventually given up.
